Since you are offended by the words 'Merry Christmas', I suggest you stop using them. If you live in an area that say Merry Christmas and you are bothered, again I suggest you move to an area that does not say Merry Christmas.
I am upset that we have people like you in the country. Intolerants.
I am intolerant of slavery and child prostitution. Does that make me a bad person in your eyes? You should not tolerate evil things. You guys really need a better understanding of the words you use.
That being said I am not at all bothered by Merry Christmas. Christmas is now mostly a secular holiday about peach on earth and good will toward men. If christians want to add a religious element then they are free too but everyone should celebrate Christmas.
I thought we had Freedom of Speech. If the person speaking wants to say Merry Christmas, what's the problem? If the person wants to respond by Happy Holidays, etc. should be no problem. Don't sweat the small stuff. Learn to appreciate others.
'Multicultural' is not homogenized. It is Christmas. It is a religous event. Generic PC expressions are sterile. This nation is 80% favorable to JC, which is common in the world. They celebrate. No problem. Merry Christmas.
So why is it okay to say Happy Chanukah or Happy Kwanzaa, etc? This is America and why should we chance for people who decided they wanted to move here? I don’t like the fact I have to press a button to continue in English. Last time I checked that was the language of America. You should have to push a button if you want another language. My father emigrated from Ireland and my mother emigrated from Italy and they blended in. Wake up America because we are being taken over by people from other countries. If your country was so great why did you want to come to America?
